Moving 4-Ward - Larry Corban


Feeling a bit camera shy


Larry Corban grew up in Middletown, New Jersey and started playing the guitar at the age of 13. By the time he was in high school, he was playing in local rock bands. Upon hearing Wes Montgomery and Pat Martino, he decided to take up serious study of jazz guitar by attending Ithaca College of Music. He received his Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from Ithaca College, where he studied with guitar great, arranger, and educator par excellance, Steve Brown. In 1993 he moved to New York City where he learned to Òreally play through the streetsÓ by becoming part of the burgeoning downtown village seen. He studied privately with Wayne Krantz, Pat Martino, Joanne Brackeen, Jack Wilkins, Vic Juris, Larry Coryell, and Mick Goodrick, all the while getting a chance to play with Omer Avital, Avishae Cohen, Daniel Freedman, Oz Noy, Ralph Peterson Jr., Joe Cohn, Dion Parsons, Ugonna Okegwo, Duane Eubanks, Jay Collins, Grant Stewart, Sasha Perry, Victor Jones, Cliff Barbaro, Big John Patton, and Frank Hewitt. While living in New York, Larry has developed a style of sharped-edged chording, crisply articulated lines, and the seemingly effortless ability to move between the two. His reportoire consists of standards, bebop, and challenging originals with one foot in the tradition and the other "Moving 4-Ward" into the future.
